TERESA NORONHA FEIO | Permutazioni 2019/2020
Teresa Noronha Feio has been selected for a research residency inside the framework of Permutazioni 2019/2020, with the project A Tale for the Rootless. The examination board – composed by Cristiana Candellero, Doriana Crema, Enrico Pastore, Federica Tardito, Stefano Mazzotta and Valentina Tibaldi – has been helped, in selecting, by the winners of the previous edition: Amina Amici, Elisa D’Amico, Francesco Dalmasso.
A Tale for the Rootless is a choreographic investigation into the idea of personal archives. Her research is based on the reconstruction of identity through family and historical memories, embodying the image of colonial heritage and investigating in choreography a gestural, textual and rhythmic translation. Teresa starts from an assemblage of traces that date back to the decades of ’60-’70 in order to investigate her identity through the body and transforms it into fertile traces of which she grasps the contradictions and problems related to an identity heritage grafted.
